Hey whats up guys,

I'm new to this website and I would really appreciate it if someone could help me get rid of viruses, spyware, and what not.
I have SuperAntiSpyware and the threats that come up are:

1. Unclassified Unknown Origin/System (2)
2. Adware Adsponsor/ISM (4)
3. Adware.Vundo Variant (5)
4. Adware.Tracking Cookie (24)
5. Rogue MalwareAlarm-Installer
6. Adware Vundo-Variant

Not really sure what else to say or to begin with...

Did you Quarantine these? If so that's good. How is the PC running? If not rerun the super scan.
To be sure it's gone run these
Please download RogueRemover and save to you Desktop. (compatible with Windows 2000, NT, XP, Vista)
Double-click on rr-free-setup.exe to install in C:\Program Files\RogueRemover and follow the prompts.
During installation an icon will automatically be created on your Desktop.
If the program does not open after installation, double-click on the RogueRemover icon to launch.
Select "Check for Updates" and click Download if any are found.
Wait for the updates to finish downloading, then Close the update window.
Select "Scan" and follow the onscreen directions to remove anything found.
If nothing is found, exit RogueRemover.
If RogueRemover finds something, it will present a list of detected items.
Click "Remove selected", then Yes at the prompt.
Wait for the removal to complete and then close RogueRemover.
If using Windows Vista, be sure to Run As Administrator

Please follow the the instructions for using Vundofix in BC's self-help tutorial: "How To Remove Vundo/Winfixer Infection".

After running VundoFix, a text file named vundofix.txt will have automatically been saved to the root of the system drive, usually at C:\vundofix.txt. Please copy & paste the contents of that text file into your next reply.

I checked afterwards and there is no previous versions of Java. There is only Java 6 Update 3.
I'm also getting popups even when I'm not online.

Some variants of vundo may not be detected by Vundofix so the "Add more files" or "Drag & Drop" options are other ways of ridding this malware. These files need to be identified and posting a hijackthis log will enable an expert to advise you which files to add if you continue to have problems. If the infection remains after using VundoFix, then you should post a hijackthis log.

Please read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". In step #9 there are instructions for downloading HijackThis and creating a log. (This is a self-extracting version which will automatically install HJT in the proper location.)

Important: Some variants of vundo malware will hide certain entries in a hijackthis log to prevent detection so you need to rename HijackThis before using it.
  • After installing HijackThis, open My Computer or Windows Explorer and navigate to the HijackThis Folder.
  • Inside the folder, right-click on the HijackThis.exe file and rename it Scanner.exe.
  • Double-click on Scanner.exe (which is still HijackThis) run a scan, save the logfile and copy/paste it into a new topic in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts.
Give your topic, a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. Please include the top portion of the HijackThis log that lists version information. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your post or make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
